In this article I will touch on the benefits of recreational scooters and how they are different from the more traditional medical mobility scooters. 

What Are Recreational Mobility Scooters?

Recreational Mobility Scooters are powered by an electric motor, made in different designs and some can accommodate more than one passenger. They are manufactured for use on paved surfaces and are often used for transportation and recreation. They typically have small wheels and a footboard on which the rider stands, and are controlled by handlebars. Some recreational scooters can reach speed of around 20mph and have a range of 20 miles on a single charge of their battery. They are also sometimes known as electric scooters, kick scooters, or e-scooters.

Medical Vs. Recreational Mobility Scooters

Recreational mobility scooters and medical mobility scooters are both designed to help individuals with mobility impairments or disabilities, but they have some key differences.

Recreational mobility scooters are typically used for leisure activities, such as going to the park, running errands, or visiting friends and family. They tend to have a smaller size, better maneuverability and stability, and a faster top speed, typically around 15 miles per hour. They often have less weight capacity and a smaller overall weight, this allow them to be portable and easy to transport in vehicles.

Medical mobility scooters, on the other hand, are often used for more serious medical needs. They are typically larger and sturdier, with a weight capacity of up to 500 pounds. They have a slower top speed, around 4-8 mph and often have more advanced features like adjustable seating, seat belts, and oxygen tank holders. They are generally designed to be used primarily indoors and are often used by people who have difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time.

It's also worth noting that there are some models that are designed to fit the characteristics of both types, they are known as Heavy-Duty Mobility Scooters.
